Our organization has started installing 2019 Hyper-V (Build 10.0.17763). It looks like 2019 Core, but behaves differently when onboarding to WDATP. Here is my issue. I use the onboarding script like I have done on our other 2019 servers, but fails to Onboard because there is no SENSE service. I verified in Windows features that Defender was installed and the windefend service was running. I tried re-installing the feature, and verified everything was installed. The Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection Service (SENSE) was still missing. It was there on my other core machines, but the 2019 Hyper V OS was not. I cannot seem to onboard without this service. So I then tried just Installing the Microsoft Monitoring Agent, but of course I get a healthservice error saying it was incompatible with 2019. All other OS's in our environment are fine, 2012R2, 2016, 2019 standard and core. Is there a different process to Onboard 2019 Hyper-V OS. We currently have two of these in our environment, and I am sure we will have more coming soon.

Hi, appreciate this is an old post but wondered if you ever got any answers? Not much around the web on this scenario!

I am in the same position of trying to onboard hyper-v 2019 servers and assume they are not supported due to the lack of info!?

 

Thank you

Hi Kelly,
1. Do you observe any error while on-boarding?
2. Please let us know if you have tried all the steps mentioned in the article - https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/security/defender-endpoint/troubleshoot-onboarding?vi...

Thanks,

I can't seem to find anything stating Hyper-V 2019 is supported or not for Defender for Endpoint. I do not see the sense service installed. When running the onboarding script, our output is below.

Just wondering if you ever got this to work.

 

This script is for onboarding machines to the Microsoft Defender for Endpoint services, including security and compliance products.
Once completed, the machine should light up in the portal within 5-30 minutes, depending on this machine's Internet connectivity availability and machine power state (plugged in vs. battery powered).
IMPORTANT: This script is optimized for onboarding a single machine and should not be used for large scale deployment.
For more information on large scale deployment, please consult the MDE documentation (links available in the MDE portal under the endpoint onboarding section).

Press (Y) to confirm and continue or (N) to cancel and exit: Y
